The campaigners of European Union (EU) citizens in Britain are considering prosecuting the government after being denied the right to vote in the current European Parliament elections, the Observer reported.

John Halford, a public law expert, said the election failure this week was something that democracy should not tolerate. “The right to vote is the basis of all citizenship rights.” Last Thursday, it was explicitly denied to exercise this right. The situation we are planning to review will show that this is not something that will be borne by law, and that there must be accountability and consequences. ”

Halford is working with the UK’s 3 million group, which is campaigning for the rights of EU citizens after Britain leaves the European Union, campaigning for Britons who have settled elsewhere in the bloc.

Recently, a mass funding campaign was launched on Saturday to fund the legal case in consultation with lawyers, including Anneli Howard and Dina Rose. The latter represented the Guardian in its successful case, which overturned the decision to ban Prince Charles’ secret messages four years ago, one of a string of legal victories over government secrecy.

Many EU citizens were not found on the voters’ lists, the Observer said, while Britons protested abroad that their ballot papers appeared only in the days leading up to the election, or did not appear at all.

The Guardian has received about 1,000 stories of European Union and British citizens in Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Labor MP David Lammy said the election system amounted to “ugly discrimination” for people who had “suffered three years of humiliation and exploitation to ask them to vote, but they can not and stay at home.”
